    The fact that the Baldeneysee has been created artificially, you can hardly see it today. Not only water sports fans, he attracts, but just the continuously developed foot and bike path around the lake is very attractive.

    By bike along the lake, you can only on the south bank. On the north shore only the footpath goes along the shore, brave cyclists take course the bike path.

    Getting to the Baldeneysee by bike is actually always possible. !!
    We always take a biker break at Haus Scheppen, there is always something to see, and there is a variety of food and drinks at reasonable prices.

    It is worthwhile in any case to visit the Baldeneysee by bike. Flat and the bike path is well developed. At the house Scheppen you can take a break. But overcrowded on weekends and just too crowded. Unfortunately it does not make fun anymore.

    Wonderful easy bike tour, always right along the water. Best surface, no gradients. Partly through shady deciduous forests, therefore pleasant to drive on even in the heat. Wonderful flora and fauna on and next to the lake.

    Today, the Baldeneysee is used, among other things, for water sports and as a local recreation area. On its bank in Heisingen is the Heisinger Bogen bird sanctuary, a breeding ground for grebes, cormorants, herons and other threatened birds.
    The Hespertalbahn runs on the south-east bank with seasonal museum trains.
    The continuously developed footpaths and bike paths around the lake are around 14 kilometers long. The marathon around the Baldeneysee takes place here.
    Every year sailing regattas are held on the lake, some of which are of national importance. There is also a regatta course for rowing and canoeing and underwater anchorages for playing fields for canoe polo. Competitions up to European championships are held here.
